I need to install :
".NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)"

on multiple Windows 10 as its required by older software.

When I try to install it I get :

Windows features Screenshot
Error message

Windows couldn't complete the requested changes.

The changes couldn't be completed.  Please reboot your computer and try again.

Error Code: 0x800F0954

The customer has WSUS and Windows 10 appears to be trying ot get this install from WSUS.

Why can't it find it / get it from WSUS ?  And why can't it download from Microsoft directly if that fails ?
